Persian Potato Patties (Kookoo Sib Zamini)

BY PANTEA MARALANI: Pantea is a creative cook who loves creating new flavors by tweaking recipes to include healthier ingredients.



12 potato patties

5 threads of premium saffron ( or a pinch)
2 pounds potatoes
3 large eggs
1 small yellow onion, grated, discard the juice
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Vegetable oil


Place potatoes in a large pot, add water to cover by a couple of inches, boil on medium-high heat until tender. Drain and set aside to cool.

Peel the potatoes and grate them.

Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl, add grated potatoes, onions, turmeric, flour, salt and pepper and saffron. Mix all ingredients well. Set aside for 15-20 minutes.

Make small patties, flatten them in an oval or round shape. You can also spoon the potato mixture into the oil.

Heat 5-6 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry potato patties on both sides until golden brown.

Serve with fresh herbs, pickles, olives, yogurt and warm bread.
